I'm a Poll Man:
A new poll finds that three in 10 registered American voters believe an armed rebellion might be necessary in the next few years.
The survey, by Fairleigh Dickinson University's PublicMind, aimed at measuring public attitudes toward gun issues, and 29 percent of participants agreed with this statement: "In the next few years, an armed revolution might be necessary in order to protect our liberties."
An additional five percent were unsure.
By party, 18 percent of Democrats agreed with the statement, compared to 27 percent of independents and 44 percent of Republicans. Support levels were highest among less educated voters.
Sucks to be you:
Poor KEVIN BACON is just too darned popular. The star of "The Following" tells "Access Hollywood Live" he was so desperate to see what life was like as a regular person that he had a prosthetic disguise made and wore to it to a popular mall. Although no one recognized him, he didn't like going unnoticed and says that 99 percent of people are nice to him. The sensitive star admits that some fans even say "I love you" and that's "a pretty good thing." (Lee)

Rounding up the usual suspects:
Two men facing peeping tom charges weren't hard to find. Police in Duluth, Georgia, say they crashed through the ceiling of a women's restroom and landed inside the stalls.
The manager of the movie theater where it all went down thinks the pair got into the ceiling through the men's room and crawled over to the women's section before going boom.
They also face charges of destruction of property.
Editor's note: Really guys: A computer and a porn site. It's more expensive than a movie ticket but it's a lot cheaper than jail time.
--Boy, I'll bet those two guys were really embarrassed when they found out they were in a porn theater. (Maiman)
